FAZ Treasurer Kelvin Mutafu has quit his position, barely 24 hours after issuing a damning statement about the dealing at Football House which bordered on corruption.
In a three-paragraph resignation mailed to FAZ President Kalusha Bwalya, Mutafu just said he wished to resign and wished the remaining executives well in their endeavor to take the game forward.
“I hereby write to tender my resignation as Treasurer of the Football Association with immediate effect.
“However, I wish to thank you and the entire ExCo for having worked with you. I wish you well as you strive to take the beautiful game of ours forward,” Mutafu said in a statement also copied to the rest of the FAZ Executive Members and the General Secretary, George Kasengele.
Meanwhile, the FAZ has reacted angrily to Mutafu ‘s allegations over the Nike deal, ticketing a replica sell by calling for an executive meeting at which they intend to deal with him sternly.
“Football House is deeply disappointed with the outrageous, wild and false claims that the Treasurer Kelvin Mutafu has made regarding matters of FAZ and its operations.
“The statement by Mr Mutafu to suit his personal agenda is deeply shocking, worrying and extremely frightening. It is particularly sad considering that it is from a very senior member of the Executive Committee who has been serving at that board level for about six (6) years now.
“In view of his statement, an emergency Executive Committee meeting will be convened at which Mr Mutafu will be asked to substantiate his claims and provide the ExCo with proof. FAZ takes the allegations of corruption very seriously and will be dealt with fairly and firmly. This ExCo meeting will be convened over the next 72 hours and its outcome communicated immediately,” the FAZ statement issued by Communications Manager Nkweto Tembwe said.
